Your Dream Kitchen: The Design Is In The Details!

 

If you’re considering a kitchen re-do you might want to hang a gander at some of these great ideas direct from a custom cabinet showroom in San Antonio.

Of course two of the biggest decisions when remodeling your kitchen is your cabinet stain color and the style of the door fronts.  Do you want light stain or dark stain…..do you prefer a raised panel, flat panel, an ornate design or something simple?  I happen to love the look of these cabinets above.

But, this white cabinet with a tea stain glaze is beautiful, too!   Which suits you……light or dark…..or both?   Also, think about details you’d like to incorporate overall…….like maybe a plate rack like this and a couple of shelves for displaying your “pretty things”.

How about a snazzy vent-a-hood or wine rack……

Or super snazzy barley twist corners….

Incorporating tumbled stone in a subway pattern and glass tiles in the back splash makes a great look.

Don’t forget about the island.  Lots of attention to detail needs to put here, too.  Not only aesthetically, but from the standpoint of function.  Your island can have style and pizzazz, but still needs to accommodate your specific needs.   Make sure you think about what those needs are!

Remodeling your kitchen is an expensive, stressful process.  Don’t make it even worse by rushing into it.  Make a list of everything you’d like to incorporate and make sure you take your time in the planning stages or, better yet, hire an experienced designer to help you. 

It’ll be money well spent – I assure you – to make your kitchen the space you’ve been dreaming of. 

Happy Decorating!!!
